Curcumin is Nature’s Best Medicine

Curcumin is a chemical in the turmeric spice that turns curry sauce yellow. Tumeric is a member of the ginger family (Zingiberaceae). Turmeric’s other two curcuminoids are desmethoxycurcumin and bis-desmethoxycurcumin. Ideally,when consuming curcumanoids you would want all 3 health promoting curcuminoids:curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin, and demethoxy curcumin.  I know, its getting a little technical, but the bottom line is to get enough of this yellow staining compound in your body daily. (Don’t get it on your clothes. It
stains pretty bad)

While curcumin can be consumed in food, I typically have my patients take additional curcumin daily from dietary supplements – anywhere around 1,000 to 3,000mg a day.

Lastly, before we watch this cool video, a common question I get asked is:

‘ Dr. Geo, which are your top 5 supplements to maintain great health?’

Answer:

1.    Vitamin D3 (my frequent readers know I would say that)
2.    Omega 3 fatty acids mostly from fish oils
3.    Probiotics
4.    Curcumin
5.    Vitamin C

Part of your arsenal against disease should include curcumin

OK, now enjoy this cool video on Curcumin’s anti-cancer benefits*

    Hi – Glad to see I take all 5 from your list!

    I bet the subscribers from outside the US can appreciate curcumin – as I read an article or two a while back on the use of curcumin on those with dementia, specifically Alzheimer’s Disease. Funny how back then, when asking a US trained MD about this info they would shake their heads back and forth, but a MD from India would agree with the data, citing India has a very low incidence of dementia, possibly as a result from the abundance of spices used, curcumin in particular!

    • Hi John, I use for patients a formula called inflammatone which has high quality Curcumin. I am biased with this formula because it is found at XYwellness, a company that I am affiliated with. It is an excellent formula – I also take it everyday – http://www.xywellness.com/products/inflammatone
      Another high quality brand with only curcumin is NOW Curcumin found over the counter of many health stores. That have not affiliation with NOW. Good Luck.

        Carter,

        The problem with curcumin is it’s neither absorbed well nor retained well in the blood. The best curcumin available today is manufactured by Life Extension. They have a patented bio-enhanced preparation that has been shown to be 7 times higher in concentration in the blood than standard curcumin. Curcunin is the active compound in the Indian spice turmeric.

        • Hi Carter. Thanks for your comment. Curcumin is absorbable in a variety of ways but not by itself. Piperine and lecithin helps with absorption of curcumin and often you’ll see this combination in some supplement formulations.
